ENROLLMENT

ENROLLMENT CONDITIONS

LICA is open to children who satisfy the conditions of enrolment without discrimination whatsoever. Before enrollment, children and their parents must accept and abide by the fundamental principles that guide the school, which are :

• LICA teaches that the Bible is the guidebook for our lives and that a personal relationship with God is the way of escape from the difficult issues in life. Students attending LICA must subscribe to the principles of the Christian Faith and they must accept the Bible as God’s Word. Regular church attendance is recommended.
• LICA offers smaller class sizes with personalized instructions. Maximum classroom size is 15 students regardless of the grade.
• School discipline applies to all students of the school from the time of leaving home in the morning until they have returned home in the afternoon. This includes school-authorized events.

DIAGNOSTIC TEST

Each student entering LICA is given diagnostic tests as required by A.C.E. program. This is in order to determine skill and concept mastery. The diagnostic tests assist the evaluator in determining the student’s academic needs in each subject. After the student completes the diagnostic testing, he/she is given curriculum that meets and challenges him at his/her performance level.

Four academic areas are tested : math Levels 1-9, English Levels 1-8, reading Levels 1-8 (science, social studies, Bible Reading, and Literature and Creative Writing), and spelling Levels 2-9. These tests cover basic skills normally mastered before high school.

When weak areas are evident from the testing, the appropriate gap PACEs are prescribed to strengthen specific weaknesses. After completing the gap PACEs, the student progresses at his/her performance level. If he/she demonstrates mastery at all levels of testing, he has the ability to function at his/her chronological grade level.
